Welcome to the landing page for David A. Harding—freelance writer, Linux and Bitcoin enthusiast, and former employee of both CentraState Medical Center (2001–06) and Too Much Media (2008). Since September 2015 I’ve been employed as a technical writer for 21 Inc.

I’m a writer, but I hate writing about myself—so here’s what some other people have said:

  • Just now I found out that David Harding wrote an excellent guide on setting up and running a #bitcoin full node: https://bitcoin.org/en/full-node !

  • David is an adept and skilled technical writer. For this job, he provided multiple descriptions of software and startup items, providing each with a reasoning for keeping or uninstalling. His prose was highly attuned to our needs, David making quick response to feedback. In the end, he completed the tricky task of writing accurate IT copy, while at the same time writing such that the everyday user could broach the topic. He comes highly recommended in terms of budget, quality, schedule, and aptitude.

  • Exceptional work! I have nothing but praise. A lot of eLancers turn in great things that do exactly what I want, but sometimes a freelancer will come along and give me a new excitement for the project–David did that. He is a fantastic writer, and I hope I have the opportunity to work with him on several more projects.
